May you help to know whats wrong with me?
I am trying to use foam-extend-4.0 to see if i can run any IB tutorial,
i tried to compile icoIbFoam but it is giving the following error:
ben@ben:~/foam/foam-extend-4.0/applications/solvers/immersedBoundary/icoIbFoam$ wmake
Make/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/options:58: *** missing separator. Stop.
Make/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/options:58: *** missing separator. Stop.
Make/linux64GccDPInt32Opt/options:58: *** missing separator. Stop.

my Make/option file look like this:

-I$(LIB_SRC)/finiteVolume/lnInclude \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/meshTools/lnInclude \

-I$(LIB_SRC)/triSurface/lnInclude \
-I$(LIB_SRC)/meshTools/lnInclude \

-ltriSurface \
-lmeshTools \
-L$(FOAM_USER_LIBBIN) -limmersedBoundary \

-lfiniteVolume \
-lmeshTools \
-lsurfMesh \
-lsampling \
-ldynamicMesh \
-limmersedBoundary \

I would appreciate your support!
